FREE EVENT for all artists and art enthusiasts!
You are invited to the Creative Center's opening reception of "Scribblescapes" featuring guest artist Kirk Cruz. The reception on Friday, June 1 from 5-8pm will include refreshments, a live poetry reading by the renowned John Cho, as well as a live demonstration and artist talk with Kirk. His love of color and his unique "scribble" technique render rich and beautiful works.
Kirk Cruz was born in Fresno California and has studied painting and drawing for over 20 years. He was inspired and encouraged by his father Gilbert Cruz during his youth. Cruz studied at Fresno State, Fresno City College, South Lake Tahoe College and Clovis Adult School. His work is commonly exhibited in the Fresno Art Hop and the Clovis Art Hop. He has also been exhibited in the Fresno Art Museum, Brush and Easel Gallery, CMAC Fresno, Fresno Art Association, M Street Gallery, Studio on the Parks in Paso Robles, and more. Cruz has taught art at the After-School Program at Martin Luther King Intermediate School and at the Clovis Library Teen Program.
The work featured in this exhibition is his most recent work in color permanent ink pens, which showcases his unique process and interest in Color Theory. Incredible "scribble art" by artists from The Creative Center will also be on display.
Cruz’s other artistic interests include dance, singing, acting and martial arts. He has performed in local shows and currently is looking to expand into film.
